  • One speaking slot

    Normally with DC101, you have to know me to become a speaker. This way I can be 100% sure that A) The person will be reliable B) I like the person C) The person knows what they're talking about & D) They are doing it for the right reason*.

    This year, I am opening up one slot to "others".

    I prefer picking people who will not only be good speakers, but who are willing to do DC101 for the right reason*.

    *In my mind, the right reason is to actually "give back" to the community. Not to pimp out their company or how they themselves are an uber 1337 CISSP.

    In that tone, when you're doing the CFP for 101, keep these things in mind:
    Don't give me a bio about your awesome career at Sony or EMC or Google or Apple or blah blah blah, tell me about what you've done with the DefCon/Hacking Community... OR make it funny enough for me to actually laugh out loud.
    The dates for this CFP are different than DEF CON, keep that in mind.
    This is for DefCon 101, remember that...

    Those are the major guidelines, if you have other questions, ask (via email).

    Speaker Bio(s):

    This text will be used for the website and printed materials and should be written in the third person. Remember the guidelines from above.


    Your abstract will be used for the website and printed materials. Summarize what your presentation will cover. Attendees will read this to get an idea of what they should know before your presentation, and what they will learn after. Use this to inform about how technical your talk is, what tools will be used, what materials to read in advance to get the most out of your presentation. This abstract is the primary way people will be drawn to your session.

    Detailed Outline:

    You must provide a detailed outline containing the main points and navigation through your talk - show how you intend to begin, where you intend to lead the audience and how you plan to get there. The outline may be provided in a separate attachment and may be as simple as a text file or as detailed as a "bare bones" presentation. The better your outline then the better we are able to best review your presentation against other submissions (and the higher chance you have of being accepted).

    SUBMISSION NOTE: Presentations that are submitted without abstracts, outlines, or speaker bios (e.g. that have only pdf's, ppt's, or white papers attached or only point to a URL) will not be considered.

    Supporting File(s):

    Additional supporting materials such as code, white papers, proof of concept, etc. should be sent along with this email to dc101<at>gayhackersYOURPANTS<dot>org. Note that additional files that may help in the selection process should be included. We are not asking for a complete presentation for this initial submission – That will only be required if you are selected for presenting.

    By submitting this CFP, you hereby agree to buy HighWiz a beer (even though he probably won't drink it and it will just sit there). You also agree that gay is the new black and midget tossing should be an Olympic sport. You acknowledge that you have been to more than one DefCon and as such do not require HighWiz or his representatives or DefCon to hold your mother fuckin' hand throughout this speaking process. You also agree to the following facts: Han shot first, Picard > Kirk, 42 is the answer, even if a dude sucks YOUR dick - you're still gay, ninja > pirates, emacs < vi, there's nothing gay about two dudes just "helping each-other out" and that Westley could have done much better than buttercup.

    If you have not received confirmation of your submission after two business days, well, it's YOUR job to figure out what went wrong. Happy Hunting!

    Some additional notes:

    No honorarium. Don't even ask for it. You'll get a badge and you'll be happy about it.

    Updates will be here and/or on my twitter.

    The selection committee is a highly secret group of people that I know & trust.
    Bribing them may work, but they are definitely not cheap...

    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts, And I looked and behold: a pale horse. And his name, that sat on him, was Death. And Hell followed with him.
